Christian Values

Our value for this half term is TRUTHFULNESS.

… tell the truth to each other.” Zechariah 8:16   

Inspired by the Spirit life

Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life, life in all its fullness”. (John 10.10) 

This key verse underpins all that we aim to do at Nailsworth CE Primary School as we seek to help children grow in all areas of their life. Rather than just creating ‘learners’, we want to help them to develop a spirited approach to life, aimed at enabling them to fully engage in their relationships with themselves, each other and the world. We want them to leave our school as well-developed human beings with the right attitude to life, ready for the next stage of their growth.

Our school vision: Together, inspired by the challenge, summarises this aim and is underpinned by practical Christian Values. The chosen values help develop a spirited atmosphere in the school and children are encouraged to use these values throughout their day to make the most of all the opportunities open to them.

Christian Value Badges

These are awarded to children who demonstrate how they are taking these values into their lives. We love to hear how your children are living these values at home too, so do please write in to your child’s class teacher to share your stories and help us celebrate these values together.
